Chandra was more active and smart and easily meandered her way down the Pass but when she reached Tandi, she felt concerned for her beloved and to find him, climbed up the valley towards the present village of Kaylong. Soon Bhaga was found coming with great struggle through the narrow rocks. Seeing him coming Chandra also came back to Tandi where consequently they both met and the celestial marriage was performed.

From the starting points on the Baralacha Pass the water followed both of them which gradually took the form of two rivers that are known to-day after their names. From this point of confluence, i.e. Tandi, the joint name was given to the rivers, Chandrabhaga because Chandra and Bhaga had united into the eternal wedlock. Tayul monastery about 6 kms. from Keylong is one of the oldest and has a very big statue of the great Buddhist scholar and preacher Padmasambhava referred to earlier.

So far the, coverage is on the Buddhist monasteries and Buddhism at some length though as indicated before Hindus out-number the Buddhists. This is rightly so as there are hardly any Hindu temples in Lahul and Spiti. Almost every Hindu inhabitant here is imbued with Lamaism. This is not strange if we look into the background of the people.
